Has anybody done this tutorial w/ vinyl fabric? Any tips for making it spill-proof?

Sorry I haven't been on here in a while.   Shocked  I just looked through the thread and you all have done some awesome pouches/bags!!!

To answer craftsblogger's question, I've made plenty of these in fabric with a clear layer of vinyl over the top.  Here's a picture of one (slightly larger version of the original, but you get the idea):

I don't use interfacing when I use the vinyl as the vinyl is usually enough to keep the pouch's structure.  Also, when sewing with the vinyl, I treat the vinyl and outer fabric as one layer.  When top stitching either side of the zipper, I use tissue paper under my presser foot so the vinyl doesn't stick to the presser foot.

This is just what I was looking for! Pretty easy to follow and my practice one turned out pretty good. Love how easy it is to put the zipper in...I have been terrified of zippers for years and would avoid them at all costs. I'm hoping that this has helped me to put my big girl panties on and forge ahead!

On to making the real one now that I have some confidence! Thanks for the great tut!  Grin

THIS is my go-to pattern. I've used it a million times...I admit, I'm a lurker! LOL

Zippers scare the crap out of me, but this was so easy to make! I'm making a few as goody bags for my bridesmaids. Will post pics!
